I believe WKBN is required to have a full-power digital signal by what, July 2006?
Of course, that doesn't mandate HD.
WYFX won't be digital at all for some time. Digital LPTV stations are only now starting to come on in very limited numbers. Right now, the only ones under the new rules are some translators in Norfolk, VA. Most folks think LPTVers will have to "flash cut" on their existing channel...i.e. to convert to digital, WYFX/WFXI will have to turn off the analog transmitters on 17 and 62 and turn on digital transmitters on the same channels.
Since WKBN doesn't seem to be in any hurry to go digital/HD on their main station, I'm sure they're also in no hurry to do that on their FOX LPTV duo.
